Join us in celebrating the 80th birthday of Jules Broussard – the talented musician who has been a driving force in the creation of our vibrant Bay Area musical community! For over three decades Jules has shared studio and stage with such luminaries as Ray Charles, Boz Scaggs, Van Morrison, Carlos Santana, Earl Grant, Elvin Bishop, Art Garfunkel and Doctor Hook. Help us honor this Bay Area jazz legend’s special day with an evening of incredible music and the best company around!
